Flint's water crisis is now affecting kids on the athletic fields.

The 2016 CANUSA Games will be held this summer in Hamilton, Ontario, instead of Flint as originally planned.

The games are a 58-year-old annual amateur sporting competition between the two communities, with the location alternating each year.

The switch away from Flint this year was instigated by Hamilton CANUSA, and jointly announced by the CANUSA Games Organizing Committees from Hamilton and Flint.

Flint’s games will go on.

Flint school district students have competed against their peers from Hamilton, Ontario for more than a half-century in a variety of sports.

Last year, the financially troubled school district decided to end its funding, putting the future of the games in doubt.
